His cutter has heavy sink. His fourseam fastball has heavy sinking action, is a real worm killer that generates an extreme number of groundballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has less armside movement than typical and has essentially average velo.

His change is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' changeups, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.
